When I hear the word flat, I automatically think of something bad.
1. Flat tyre being the first one (I have never experienced a flat tyre, but if it does happen, I just know it will be a nightmare situation because:
a. I don't know how to change a tyre.
b. I am not a member of a pick-up-fix-your-tyre service.
c. I never have any credit on my phone, so I wouldn't be able to ring anyone, apart from the Guards (emergency calls are free!). Of course, they wouldn't be too impressed me thinks.
2. Flat fizzy drink. I am not a big fizzy drink kind of girl, however, if I do drink this sort of a beverage, I prefer them to be really, really cold. And definitely not flat. That warm, sweet, sickly taste is disgusting.
3. Flat hair. Although I can easily remedy that by doing those rocker-esque hair tosses and mousse, loads of hair mousse.
4. Flat battery. Both in a car and a mobile phone. I wouldn't mind the phone having a flat battery because I never have any credit to text or ring anyone, anyway. I do tend to turn my phone off or leave it on silent sometimes. So, ya flat battery in my phone-whatever! Flat battery in my car-disaster!
My four negative flat connotations are having a bit of a car vibe. Basically, I'd hate it if anything happened to my car. My freedom would be gone. (Sorry, being a bit of a drama queen, but anyone who lives at home in the middle of nowhere, will understand).
There is a massive POSITIVE flat to this story and that is flat shoe. Flat shoes are definitely not negative for me. (As in ballet pumps or whatever name you like to call them). Being a tall girl I like flat shoes. With 5 inch heels on, I turn into a 6 foot 3" giant, so with my flats I feel sort of petite. (Don't get me wrong, I have heels that are 5 inches high, and I wear them with pride, but sometimes I just need to come back down to earth, as opposed to having my head in the clouds). I'm not at all petite in any sense of the word. But there is psychology for you!
My favourite ballet flats at the moment are of the French Sole variety. I don't have a pair yet, but I can feel the time of owning some will be soon! (As soon as I get a job!). Here are a few of the contenders:
I like India, in yellow, purple and bright pink. Colourful feet=Happy feet!
Sturdy Cheetah...two words I never thought would be in the same sentence. But it works! Actually, I'll take all of the Sturdy collection.

I better get a job soon 'cause these are not cheap. But they are worth the price don't you think?
So, are you a flattie or a heelie?
